Brenda Leigh seeks re-election for the seventh time as Area D regional director in the upcoming elections on Nov. 19.

Leigh said she brings, along with her dynamic style, knowledge, education, experience and skills to her work.

She wants to continue providing “excellent public service” to the people of Area D and the region.

She said she is incredibly focused and has led her constituents through some very complex issues.

Leigh wants to continue working on providing regional services such as sewers, hospitals, libraries, parks, recreation and other enhancements, while ensuring taxes are kept under control and creating a climate of security and stability.

“I stand on my 18 year record as a community leader,” said Leigh.

“In 2011, I managed to lower taxes by an average of $176 per $100,000 of assessment so people are so grateful that I am standing for re-election. They know I will protect their interests.”

Leigh has lived in her home in Stories Beach since 1989, where she raised her two sons.

The family has been active in the community, especially in sports like football, hockey, lacrosse, street hockey, and soccer.

According to Leigh, there is no underestimating the positive effect of youth sports on our next generation.

She said she will keep the community between Oyster River and Ocean Grove financially stable, and she always will adhere to the community’s wishes, as she has in the past.

“I don’t believe I’ve ever ‘dropped the ball’ on any issue or missed a single meeting in all this time,” said Leigh.

As well as being a regional director for the Strathcona and Comox Valley districts, Leigh chairs the Black Creek-Oyster Bay services committee.

And she is also a member of the local hospital board, solid waste management, and an executive on the Vancouver Island Regional Library board.
